The British Ski Center is a unique English founded ski school offering you over 25 years of professional experience and fun ski & snowboard tuition with native English speaking ski instructors guaranteeing you maximum progression whether this is your first time on the snow or if you are looking at pushing yourself further to more advanced techniques.
All our instructors are qualified, contracted by law and highly motivated to teach you the thrills and excitement of skiing and/or snowboarding. Whilst it is possible to find “English speaking” instructors through the other schools, usually their knowledge is limited to technical vocabulary rather than competent explanatory conversation. Strong levels of general conversation are essential for teaching anything in order to build up client/instructor relations and offer high quality tuition, particularly when YOU require detailed explanations relating to the techniques being taught. This is where we always come out on top!

Notes From the Professionals
NEVER rely on friends or family to teach you unless they are qualified and experienced themselves (and even then it is not particularly recommended!). A high percentage of ski accidents, (not to mention arguments!), occur in these situations where basic safety procedures and techniques are taught incorrectly or not at all.
DO REMEMBER that Sierra Nevada is, perhaps surprisingly, one of the highest ski resorts in Europe. The altitude change can bring on “Altitude Sickness” including such symptoms as dehydration, nausea, dizziness, headaches, nose bleeds and weariness.
Very young children on their first skiing holiday should consider a single hour to begin with, to ensure they are enjoying themselves whilst acclimatising – PLEASE REMEMBER TO FEED THEM BEFORE THEIR CLASS!!
As Sierra Nevada becomes increasingly popular as an alternative ski destination with English-speaking visitors, demand is also increasing significantly for English speaking ski instructors. British Ski Center can guarantee you this in a way that no other ski school in the resort can!
